Before the gates opened, before popcorn
      and cotton candy drifted down throats

like sweet and salty summer evenings
   of childhood, before the townspeople

confessed to the music and lights,
   the Ferris wheel baskets swung empty

in a slow arc, one by one, offering color
     to the sky -- red, yellow, orange, blue.

Just roving boys, what else could we do
      but follow the sandaled feet of girls

out to the fair to buy them rides
    until our pockets turned up penniless,

until we lost them in the dark
  the way sparrows will fly from you,

until our last walk past the fun house
      mirrors stretched our bodies like gum,

when we caught ourselves looking
   back at ourselves for the first time.
